History
Many years ago this was a gift from my father-in-law after he had driven it as a parts hauler when he worked on his Peterbilt.

He was the second owner, and after finding some original paperwork I discovered that I had known the car with it's original owner.

I drove it as a daily driver for several years. It has survived a flood in which water made it up to the doors but didn't get in.
